North Korea - North Korea today announced it is holding a "clown" congress to choose a new leader and several other important government posts.
The surprising move appeared to turn their normal boring process of playing musical chairs, where Kim Jong-Il says "quit or die", to be something much more interesting. All 500 representatives, who incidentally are also named Kim Jong-Il, were dressed in clown garb, throwing water balloons, slapping eachother and spraying silly string around the chambers.
"It is chaos here," said reporter Jean le Fete, "I'm really not sure what is happening, we are simply waiting for something, anything logical to happen, but so far there is no sign of the end in sight."
So far the only post to be filled is for the Director of the Ministry of Albatross, which apparently doesn't do anything but barbecue "hot wings".
